  1. Place the potatoes into a pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. Drain, and set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar, half of the onions, and half of the cheese. Gently stir in the cooled potatoes. Top with remaining cheese and onions, and sprinkle bacon bits over the top.

I have tried this recipe twice, the first time exactly how it is written, the second time I skipped the sugar and it was far better. Sugar makes it too sweet for potato sald. Without it, it tastes just like a "loaded" baked potato. Terrific!



I loved this recipe, but altered it slightly to give it more flavor. I chopped up a few hard boiled eggs and added dill, garlic powder, onion powder, ground mustard and a pound of pepper bacon (versus bacon bits). I have been asked to bring it to several family get-togethers and my picky nephew called it "heavenly." Will make it all summer for a variety of gatherings and events. Thanks!



I work at a restaurant and brought this in for all the other "foodies" to try. They loved it!! I made 2 versions, one with celery and one without, celery won hands down. I did not add as much celery as I would for a traditional potato salad. I did not add the sugar. I substituted fresh chives for the green onions. The bacon was added at the very end to ensure it wasn't soggy. If you make it the night before, be sure to leave it out for a little while before serving, the sour cream makes the dish set up kind of hard. This will be made many times over. Thank you!!!
